Happy birthday Bill Shankly.

Ok let's be honest here.

How many times have you replayed Moreno's goal? No exaggeration, I'm on 30+.

To top it off I'm about to watch MOTD again.
+2
I like to watch it with a youtube video of an F16 kicking into afterburner playing in the background right when he steals the ball.
+2
Ooooh, I like the sound of that - might have to try that!

His seriously quick isn't he? Pulled away from Townsend with the ball hahaha.
+1
Link?
Btw, guys vote him for goal of the week!

Costa is leading :(
i have yet to watch the highlights lol
Falcao has no ambition as a footballer, he is a money monger. First he made a substandard move to Monaco and now to United, who are a big club, but no champions league and this is purely down to the crazy wages they are paying him. Smh.
+6
Yeah, but at least he missed out on the La Liga trophy that Atletico won without him last year, due to his lust for money. Fantastic season from them last year.
+3
You know you are having a good day when 4026 is in agreement with you :D :D
+3
Yeah. N the DP yes, I kept the last one for about two years I guess :P
@ Footster , its your lucky day !
and hey you changed your dp like the first time ?

Its falcao's 5th season outside the CL , for a player of his quality, doesn't sound right.
SMH , do you guyz even know about 3rd party ownership ? Just try to learn about that and then call him player with no ambition .

His transfers were controlled by the group called Doyen and he had little say in them .
So he is basically a slave right ? Feel so sad for him. :(
@Malik: you really buy that?!! Loool. That a player had no say in his moves evem under ownership?! Maybe you need to read up on this.
+2
@Alithejack , He was a mere investment for Doyen group , they financed a large portion of his transfer fee to Porto and obtained 55 % of his economy rights ( player revenue form mrketing & etc) , and they were the one which financed 55% of his deal to A.Madrid by buy 55 % registration rights ( transfer fee ).

Now it make a perfect sense that when one part hold a controlling interest in an investment they have a direct control over that investment , which mean Doyen group had full say in where he will play next and surprise surprise he got transfers to the club which paid highest transfer fee , Doyen group was happy they nearly made 10M on their investment in a year , A.Madrid was happy because he didn't went to real .

Here he have a dedicated page on Doyen site

Hey guys I am trying to get some tickets to Liverpool Vs Real Madrid in madrid and was wondering if anyone knows if KIX tickets is a legitimate website or not? I just want to go and am willing to pay an inordinate amount of money
+1
Yeah man, those are going to be mega expensive. But, if you have the resources to go, more power to you. Good luck getting tickets.
It feels like ages since we had such a good transfer window. We have good depth in all position now. I'm pretty satisfied with how we are. Even if failed to get Sanchez and Remy, we got markovic and balotelli. I still remember we could not sign any of our targets like dempsey, sigurdsson, dembele, salah, mikhtaryan, costa few years and not champions league spot makes it so much easier to attract players.
+3
Wake up to the good news that suso is still in the squad for this season :)

i know his got really tough competition, he just needs to bond with the first team players and of course train harder.
+3
Great Transfer window
+1
816 750 000 Pounds spent this transfer window more than 100 million pounds more spent last season.
In the future, Advanced human societies will look at our generation and laugh at our non nonchalant abuse of resources. That amount of money could easily house, feed and teach every person in Africa, probably end social inequality in the uk as well. But watching idiots kick a ball for 90 mins is more important to our society.

sometime i do feel football is becoming like a modern slavery.. except the players are receiving unimaginable pay.. they belong to the club.. can be sold or etc..
Going back to Skorm's original post, and the follow up comments, I don't think Transfer Fees are the problem. The football transfer world is a fairly open market dictated by supply and demand. If football clubs are paying these sorts of fees to get players it is because they consider it to be a worthwhile investment for the reward they will get in terms of revenue and success based on what money they have available. It really is just a reflection of how big football is worldwide.
Furthermore, the money being paid on transfer fees isn't just being thrown in the gutter, it is going to another team as a transfer fee, in theory meaning the net spend should always amount to zero with smaller teams from other leagues making profits.
For example (this is based on transfermarkt.com stats), this season the English Premier League had a €-486,97 Mil deficit, while on the other hand the Dutch Eredivisie, French Ligue 1, English Championship and the Portuguese Primeira Liga had profits of €98.2mil, €79.5mil,€28.2mil and €95.6mil respectively.

Player wages on the other hand can be a different story. The money some of the top players make in wages is "unimaginable" and that is going to the individual (and their agent) for them to spend how they want.
+1
Becoming a footballer is extremely difficult. The amount of time and dedication must be up and beyond. The amount of running is something I can only imagine.

Top players like Gerrard, Messi, Cristiano, Suarez etc., must have put in countless hours into football, waking up early morning every single day and doing the same thing over and over and over again.

Football is more than a job, it connects people from all corners of this planet we live in, wherever you may be.

I met a guy once who knew not to speak English or Spanish and I said "Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Ronaldinho....." and he just started nodding and smiling even though we didn't understand each other, what we did understand was the common interest in football.

The "unimaginable" pay that this players receive is only a fruit to their "unimaginable" dedication and love of football.
+2
Yea but you have to consider other professions in comparison. Don't you think normal day to day ppl aren't dedicated at the jobs. Top doctors lawyers executives brokers scientists etc. put in those hard yards and probably have a lot more responsibility then all the footballers but in comparison get paid peanuts for their contribution to betterment of the world!!
Well guys, fist up I think that the transfer fee are overly exaggerated. Yes there is an overall balance, one man's loss is another's gain but that isn't logical. What you are saying is that if Apple starts selling Mac's for 20000USD and we start buying then in the end we will have a "loss" of 20K while Apple will have a "profit" of 20K, so it's all even steven. That's not the case, the valuation of players is highly inflated, most clubs buying big names for big amounts are running on debt. Check the debt status of any mojor club and u'll know. The transfer fee is just so random, you slap a 80M on Ronaldo and now that serves as an anchor for any other player. (Read more about anchoring of price by Dan Ariely, its an economic concept)

About the wages, even though the footballer dedicates his life to training and fitness and eats accordingly etc is a lot to ask for but its the part and parcel of your trade. Even a normal employee gets up at 6, makes his breakfast and lunch, drops the kids to school, goes though rush hour traffic, to work for someone else and take ridicule from his superior (in most cases), get back home, do the house chores, teach the kids and so and so forth but does he get a 100K a week contract anywhere? These are real people making sure your cell phone, internet, car, bank etc etc works. They are also connecting the planet in their own capacity. So I think the footballer does deserve a wee bit more cuz he goes to the extent of eating in line with his job etc and doing weight training 3 hours a day but still the amount of wages these guys are paid are nowhere comparable to the employed labor in society at large.
arsenal sign welbeck for 16mil... this prove balotelli is a much much bargain.. well we get the circus in addition to that.
+5
Only time will tell.
+9
No need for time to tell dude.. Balo > Welbeck anyday LOL!!
+4
So were in talking with valdes, his an animal there is this misconception that his overrated but I think he has the passion and loyalty required to be a pool player! And for free, what a signing that would be!
+3
There is nothing called 'free'. Signing on fees for players that have been let go from clubs are almost always hefty.
